      You could talk about the american dream, how it's become corrupted and unattainable. Discuss how it isn't about gaining the wealth rather the reach for greatness. Gatsby's ill-gotten wealth is solely to gain acceptance into the sophisticated world of the woman he loves, Daisy. It's not admirable because Gatsby never realises the world of wealth he wants to enter is corrupt and full of ruthless people. Hope that helped.
